Halloween - it's the best of times; it's the worst of times. Kids love it. We love to see the kids have fun. We love to see the creativity of the costumes. For many part of the US it's a last hurrah before the winter sets in. But the candy - the bags and bags of candy. It's not great for health or teeth.
We have handouts with great tips to help create some fun, tasty and nutritious treats. It's a great time to hand them out at school, at the rec center, at the doctor's office or other public health posts. It's a reminder to parents and educators that we can celebrate without getting into scary food situations. We know on top of the health concerns, we're all seen our angles turn into monster, with or without costume, after a few too many treats. There's a handout for healthy Halloween party tips and one of healthy Halloween treats.
